Beach Day’s Cover Of “Dracula’s Daughter; Winter Tour Dates With The Thermals Announced

Rolling Stone has premiered Beach Day’s cover of “Dracula’s Daughter.” The song was originally recorded in 1964 by Screaming Lord Sutch, and written by Alan Zeffert & Tony Day. Beach Day recorded the song in North Miami with Kramer (Galaxie 500, Low) and had it mixed by Jim Diamond (White Stripes, Dirtbombs, Sonics). Beach Day’s Kimmy Drake told Rolling Stone, “I wanted to record a Halloween song but didn’t want to do something too obvious.” She added, “Our drummer is mildly obsessed with horror garage music icon Screaming Lord Sutch, and when I found footage of Joe Meek and Sutch actually recording ‘Dracula’s Daughter,’ we both became enthralled with the idea of covering the song.”

Earlier this summer, Beach Day released their debut album “Trip Trap Attack” on Kanine Records. Spin Magazine said “Stay” had “Tight, ragged riffs with swoon-worthy vocals that would make Joey Ramone weak in the knees,” while Filter Magazine described “Walking on the Streets” as “Nearly four minutes of gorgeous surf and garage rock, complete with tambourine bashing, sentimental keys, jangly guitar, and rich vocals all about lust and longing. It captures the sincerity of the ’60s, while ringing ever so true today.”

 

Beach Day just had a successful run at New York’s CMJ Music Marathon and are heading to Detroit to start recording their sophomore album with Jim Diamond. The band will end the year back in Florida on a tour with The Thermals. All dates below.
